outcome about money. at the end of the election it turns out that barack obama had raised a billion dollars, nearly a quarter of that in the last two months all mostly from small donors. looking ahead a little bit, what does this mean about the future of money? will it get worse, anything? >> this was a $2 billion presidential election, just an unfathomable sum. but most of the outside money which is the big question mark was on the republican side. and it did not succeed, not only in the presidential race. they came up short in a lot of senate races as well. so the question is -- how effective this money really is if it cannot be coordinated with the campaigns. one thing that we do know that it did do is it made this race a lot more negative. the numbers and the analysis really shows there was a lot more negative advertising because outside groups are not capable of putting forward the biographical or the positive schematic. they are there to attack and to tear down the opponent. >> i want to know what it means for the future. have we seen what amounts to a real alignment? do democ

over who will succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. first to the fiscal cliff. at the end of the year the buescher ra tax cuts will expire and the first wave of $1.2 trillion in spending cuts is scheduled to kick in. c.e.o.'s and economists alike are worried this will send the economy spiraling back into recession. the solution, $1. trillion in new revenue, much to come from raising taxes on wealthy americans. >> if congress does nothing, every family in america will see their income taxes automatically go up on january 1. every family. everybody here, you'll see your taxes go up on january 1. and it's not acceptable to me and i don't think it's acceptable to you for just a handful of republicans in congress to hold middle-class tax cuts hostage simply because they don't want tax rates on upper-income folks to go up. gwen: house speaker john boehner's response, no way. they are, he said, at stalemate. >> the white house spends three weeks trying to develop a proposal, and they send one up here that calls for $1.6 trillion in new taxes, calls for a little -- not even $400 bill

rates. when you look at the math, it does not work. >> this week we made a good-faith offer to avert the fiscal crisis and that offer included significant spending cuts and reforms and it included additional revenue and frankly, it was the balanced approach that the president's been asking for. now we need a response from the white house. we can't sit here and negotiate with ourselves. gwen: against that backdrop, new signs today that the economy is strengthening, with the jobless rate dropping to 7.7%, its lowest in four years. but even thats a mixed bag, isnt it, eamon? >> yeah, absolutely. this is a good but not great jobs number. we created 146,000 jobs in this country in november but the unemployment rate goes down to 7.7% for the wrong reasons, because a lot of people left the labor force. you'd rather s more people coming into the labor force who have been sitting on the sidelines and say hey, i think now i can get a job. also, they're going back and adjusting the previous numbers that we thought were really blockbuster. a strong number that definitely gives the president some
